Dynamics of Propagation and Interaction of Delta-Shock Waves in Conservation Law Systems

V. G. Danilov and V. M. Shelkovich

Abstract: We introduce a new definition of a $\delta$-shock wave type solution for a class of systems of conservation laws in the one-dimensional case. The weak asymptotics method developed by the authors is used to construct formulas describing the propagation and interaction of $\delta$-shock waves. The dynamics of merging two $\delta$-shocks is analytically described.
